Game_of_Cones, I had not heard of Explore and Explosive Vegetation before. I like Skyshroud Claim because with 2 Emerald Medallions in play it practically pays for itself.

Mono green deck that’s creature focused…

Allosaurus Shepherd

Destiny Spinner

Augur of Autumn

Runic Armasaur

This is mono-green…drop the mana rocks for better mana dorks and land auras to bolster that creature count and maintain a low mana curve. This opens up the avenue to use Collector Ouphe and Null Rod to cripple most players ramp and board capabilities. Rocks with static effects like Emerald Medallion should stay as they’ll not be effected.

Sylvan Library and The Great Henge are drawing staples.

Your land count is extremely low and your using token generators that rely on land fall. Get rid of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and use Ashaya, Soul of the Wild. This will add better synergy and take up the lack of lands to create more triggers on landfall.

Tamiyo's Safekeeping works well here as a backup to Heroic Intervention.

Druid of Purification and Scavenging Ooze are also great additions for utility.

Immortalys on Reki, the History of Legends

I usually end up winning through sheer numbers, combined with some finisher like Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, God-Eternal Rhonas or Heroes' Podium.

Reki allows for a lot of continuous card draw, and this deck has a little subtheme of cost reduction with cards like Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Rhonas's Monument, The Immortal Sun, Emerald Medallion and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma on top of the regular green ramp (aided by creatures like Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro who can both have Reki (who should always be on board) and themselves tap for mana and other Legendary cards like Nyx Lotus and Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest), which keeps the engine going even more.

I personally prefer to use Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as a finisher, but as you might imagine, the people you play him against aren't always happy to see him. Another type of "creature" finisher I like is Kamahl's Druidic Vow. With all the mana you're making with this deck it can quite easily be cast for X = 30+. But in general this deck doesn't have creature finishers (Vorinclex and God-Eternal Rhonas being the exceptions) as instead it tries to create a critical mass of big and tough creatures to hit the opponents hard with, preferably with the aid of some of the cards mentioned above. If you are looking for creature finishers though I would recommend running some of the Eldrazi Titans

Hexdrinker is indeed very good. The maybeboard is more of an acquire-board. It takes awhile for me to acquire new stuff since this deck is almost all foil, and the ones I get need to be blinged out. That being said....UPDATES!

-1 Emerald Medallion, -1 Explosive Vegetation, -1 Sakiko, Mother of Summer

+1 Hexdrinker, +1 Steely Resolve, +1 Three Visits

Stuff on the cutting floor: Rending Vines, and Slice in Twain. Profet93 above is correct in that the cantrip aspect of these really isn't needed.

Eyy STARMOTHER, yes Gargos makes X spell cost less. For example when you cast Mistcutter Hydra for just one G, you get a 4/4 hydra. This effect stacks with other cost reduction spells like Emerald Medallion or Herald's Horn.

Echelon86: Emerald Medallion only reduces cost of generic mana for green spells, not green mana. Also, goal is to ramp turn 1 so Yisan can come down turn 2, and Medallion does not accomplish that.

No problem! Sorry that I didn't quite understand the deck's theme.

My suggestion would be to cut two of either Bloom Tender , Lotus Petal , or Emerald Medallion for 2 lands. Petal is a nice mana burst, but kind of only powerful if you are attempting to routinely loop or combo with it. Emerald Medallion is a really strong card, but I don't think it's being maximized within this deck. You aren't ramping into huge green spells (or even moderately costed green spells) on a consistent basis. It is great if you are storming off with pump spells, but half of your green pump spells only cost a single so the cost reduction doesn't impact them. Bloom Tender is another very strong ramp spell, but again, I don't think it is being maximized here. You don't run a terribly large number of multi-colored permanents. Sure with Rafiq on the battlefield it's 3 mana, but without him it's likely only producing green mana as most of your non-buffing permanents are green (I guess you could place a non-green buff on one of your mana dorks, but that seems like a waste).

With the amount of top deck manipulation that you are running, those two cantrips are great additions. You could also consider Ponder and the weaker Portent . They both draw and allow you to shuffle your library. Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time are also fantastic since you can routinely cast them for and with Delve.

P.S. I actually think Mirri's Guile is quite strong and good in this deck, it was just the first one that I thought of when writing my earlier comment.

OLD

=16/14 cmc

NEW

= 13 cmc

These are the incoming changes guys. Expect a fully fleshed out primer implementing all of these. Also, the Moxfield primer is just going to be a redirect to the T/O primer. (Sorry guys, keeping up with multiple primers is a giant pain in the ass and I got ton on my plate atm).

Eventually I'll re-port the whole updated primer back to Moxfield.

If want to discuss these changes with the whole Yeva community, myself included join our server:
